Mac Monday: Manage Hard Drive Space

Mac BackupThis resource guides you through things you can do to free up valuable storage space.  Perhaps you just want to find those large files or duplicate files.  If you decide you cannot remove anything and still need to free up space, compression may help.  Should you need to look at replacing the hard drive for one with larger capacity, the Mac Monday topic will cover new technologies in drive storage.

One place to look for possible large chunks of space to free up is in the MobileSync folder.  If you own an iOS device or you connect one or more devices from friends and family to a Mac OS laptop or desktop you may have a backup of each device stored on your Mac.  One customer had over 100 GB of files in the MobileSync folder from perhaps eight different iOS devices.
